Ike orrect ofChae. J. Faulkner, ex-Minister to France, Dor treason, was effected to day by a detachment of the ProvcetOuard, who for that purpose repaired to bie hotel. Be waa conveyed to the Jail, under order* front the mill tary authorities through the War Department. Ho is not permitted to hold correspondence or conversation with any of his friends at present. As to the specific charges under which he (a held, they are, to far as the public is concerned, mare matters of speculation; but something has bocn said about bis baring s commission ss a Brigadier fli'MSal in the rebel army. A formal examination into the case will, howcrer, soen take place. Hi* treason. It la alleged, was chiefly perpetrated In France while ho ' eras holding a commission under the United States. He Sided agents of the rebels sent out to perchase arms, and aed his influence with the leading statesmen of France to bare the French gorornment recogniao the treasonable oligarchy of Jeff. Davis. There ie considerable rejoicing In Washington that the government ban exhibited sufficient backbono to do a good thing. Shortly after hie arrest he remarked that he was not aware of having done anything to justify these proceedings, and hot for them he would have bod his accounts settled today at the State Department, which he had visited the day after bis arrival in Washiugtou on that business, as well as to call on Secretary 8eward, in accordance with the courtesy governing ministers returning from abroad. jl ie said that a correspondence has been found among ax-Minister Faulkner's papers, shewing a collusion between him and certain members of the present Union government and that among the tilings laid down in the programme was the meeting hold in Baltimore the other evening by Breckinridge and Vallandigh&m. I learn that the strongest testimony exists that Hr. Faulkner was active, while Minister of the United States in France, iu giving aid and comfort to the rebels by purchasing arms, and volunteered to command a regiment of rebel troops on his return. OKNKRAL WOOL TO TAKE COMMAND AT FORTRESS MONROE. 1 am satisfied that Brevet Major General Wool lias been ordered to take command at Fortress Monroe, to supersede General Butler. The latter, being a full Major Generalcannot .honorably do otherwise than resign, as he will doubtless do. The public sentiment in fuvor of putting General Wool in command of a column has induced the government to take this stop, the argument being that there was no other place but Fortress Monroe where he coitM be profitably ordered. If General Wool had been ordered to report to Fortress Monroe, General Butler would have still been in command. Instead of that, Go" oeral Wool was ordered to proceed to Fortress Monroe and take command of the forces thorc, which necessarily uporsedes General Butler. arrival OF general ANDERSON. General Robert Anderson arrived hero this evening. Be seems to be in very poor health. admiral dvnda3 and the charleston blockade. The alleged semi-official announcement in tho Richmond papers that Admiral Dundas intends to take his fleet into Charleston, regardless or President Lincoln's blockade, is of no practidRl significance, even if the statement is true, for the war vossels of any nation with which we arc at peace have a right to enter our ports, 1 notwithstanding the blockade, which is intended to ope' rate against commerce wifb the disloyalists, lord LYONS AND THE SPECIAL ME83EVGER to england with A report ok THE BULL run Battle. There is good authority for saying that there is no truth in a reaoily reported conversation between Lord Lyons and Secretary Seward in tho matter of sending a special messenger to England with an account of the Bull run battle. Whatever Lord Lyons may have transmitted on that subject, was through the ordinary channel. TUN PER OF SERVICES FROM EUROPEAN AKS* OFFICERS. A number of the most distinguished army officers of Europe, particularly in England and France, have ten dered their services to the United Stales, but it is not known that any of them will bo accepted. One of tbum, jn bis letter, says he regards tlia contest as between civilization and barbarism, and bis love for the former controls his actions. OARIRALm'8 VISIT TO THIS COUNTRY. Several weeks ago one of our Consular agents abroad expressed (ho opinion that Garibaldi would visit, this country, and command a rotumn or our Union forces, if the presold crisis of the government would indicate that his services were uecdod. There being no official information on *te subject. of course the President could take no official action-, but it is understood that be lias taken measures to ascortaln the views of General (iaribaMi on the subject, and to ascertain whether he would accept a command if .offered hiin. and if so, has authorized parties to express to Iiim the great gratification it would afford the President to witness JbiB return to the United States, and to sec him at the P [E NE bead uf a col urn of our troops. U will be some time before a response will be received to tbe President's inquiry. TUB UNION PARTY HI MARYLAND. The condition of the Union party is Maryland la not so promising us could be wished. It la in isore danger from tho machinations of pretended friends than of open enemies. Apprehensions are entertained that It will be sacrificed by a squad of ultralsts, who care more to serve the purposes of Hon. Henry Winter Davis than to insure the preservation of the Union, and that efforts will be used to make the Union State Oonven tion in Baltimore on Thursday an instrument of the Jealousy and urideof Davis, instead of a source of strength and v ictory to tie Union men. The Custom House clique is one of the principal engines for bis morauders, and it is f ared their efforts to build up a Davis party or sink the Union party will result disastrously, and perhaps effect the election of a candidate who, like Mr. May, who was elected by the same influence, will turn traitor as soon as elected. THE FK1VATEER SCHOONERS YORK AND 0 BO KGB Q. BAKER. Commodore Coldsboro, of the steamer Union, communicates to the Navy Department some interesting facts concerning the complete destruction by Are or the privateer schooner York, off the Capo Hatteras light House. The other privateer captured proved to be. he says, the schooner O. C. Baker, taken by the United States staamer South Carolina on the coast of Texas and bound to New York, recaptured by the piratical schooner York, seventy five miles northeast of Capo Hatteras. He haa placed < prise crew on board and brought ber to port. Her piraU crew, four in number, are in irons on board the Union, Ho had boarded the Baker thp day before. She was, he said, commanded by a Mr. Abbot wsth a prise crew ol five men from the steamer South Carolina, and that they arc now prisoners to the rebels. BREAKING UP OF A REBEL DEPOT ON TBI POTOMAC. On Saturday last Lieutenant Budd, commanding the steamer Resolute, cleaned out one of the rebel depots ot the f'otoinnc. It baa been known for some time thai srnoL' nn tha U.anlnn.l eiHa a.wl Uaelt/ul.iob creek, opposite 011 tho Virginia Plile, wore the depots foi Maryland recruits to the rebel army in Virginia. The Resolute paid a visit to the latter creek, and having up proached within three hundred yards of the shore, w at tired upon with musketry. A beat was immediately low ered.and Lieut. Budd,withtwelvemen,landed. Tho rebeh fled at their approach, and were pursued for a mile, bui made their escape. Two muskets and a knapsack whict they threw away during their flight, were picked up Upon returning to the house, abundant evidence that il had been used as a rebel rendezvous, and papers contain irg important information, wore found. The building! were destroyed, and ten contrabands found on the pre mines were brought away. After leaving the creek Lieutenant Budd ascertained from the negroeB that then were three hundred of the rebels concentrated at tlit Hague, about live miles back from tho river, and that their ferry boat was about three-quarters of ? mile up the croek. Meeting the schooner Dana he took her gun and crew upon the Resolute, and placing tb( negroes in charge of two men of the Dona, he went back up the creek and captured a large muffled oared boat capable of carrying twenty-five or thirty men, but saw nothing of the rebels. After reporting to Commodore Craven, tho latter sent an expedition last night to Herring Creek and a number of boats were captured there. The rebels arc evidently hard pressed for provisions. They are taking all the grain out of the barns along the river for army pentoses. ARREST OP A SUPPOSED PPT. A nrnminsnt rActflnnt nf UThiio Uodda Pnlnf namrwl Burke, tu arrested to-day by our pickets, about six miles from Alexandria. He is charged with being a spy and acting as a rebel messenger.

Flowers, was arrested yesterday a few miles below Alexandria, en route for Richmond, by order of the Provost Marshal Of Alexandria, on the charge of being a spy for the rebels.

A COURT OF INQUIRY IN TEE CAS* OF COLONEL DIXON % 8. MILES. A Court of Inquiry was to be held to-day at Alexandria in the case of Colonel Pixeri S. Miles, at his own request. Its proceedings have not yet transpired here. Colonel Milea is unquestionably the most hardly used officer In the army. He is every inch a soldier, and his thirty-fivo years' active service on the frontier have failed to toach him any of the arts of politicians, or to convince him that a campaign in Washington is worth more in the way of promotion than a down campaigns in active service. This Court of Inquiry is an act of ustico to one of the oldest and most loyal and efficient officers In the regular army. TITE NEW YORK HORSE ARTILLERY TO BE IMMEDIATELY MUSTERED INTO SERVICE?ABSENT SOLDESKS, ETCColonel Latson (of the New York horse artillery, encamped at Camp Low, New York), arrived here this morning, and will leave again this afternoon, having received from the War Depart mcnt au order for the immediate mustering in or Ids regiment, Col.

In view the severe punishment of troops who commi outrages and deprodntions around Alexandria, is not onl; timely, but meets the earnest commendation of everj lover of jastioe and the Union in this vicinity. itPOINTMKNT OP A PROVOST SQUAD IN GEORGETOWN The frequent outrages and depredation committed to straggling soldiers in Georgetown has made it nccessar to extend over it the care of a provost squad. Compame A and D, second United States infantry, under commam of Lieutenant Colonel nay, have been detailed for tha purpose. If regimental officers would attend strictly ti tbolr duties, and enforce discipline among their men, tb complaints of outrages and disorderly conduct would b loss frequent. RAISE TOE STARS AND STRIPES. Complaints having been made of disorderly conduct li tbe vicinity of our outposts In Virginia, colonel Davie suggests to the residents there that the exhibition of tb Stars and Stripes at their residences will be a sure protec tion against any depredationsby Union soldiers, and at tb same time directs strict inquiry into and severe punisl ment of any violation of this badge of protection.

To those who have bad the opportunity to witness the military appearance of things in Washington, before the > recent reverse to our arms at Bull run, and since General McClellan has assumed command here, they canaol I but observe a marked improved change. Before the lute ! battle the city swarmed with officers, who spent more I than half their time in ih; hotels, liarrooins, promeuadj Ing on the avenues, or riding Dick Turpln liko through the streets on horseback, to the imminent danger of pedes1 trians and tbo ridicule of spectators. It seemed as though these officers consWorod that they were called from their homes meroly<o enjoy a huge excursion or a grand spree at the oxpense of Uncle Sam, sud not for tlie purpose of crushing out and ending a wicked rebellion. The timo thus wasted by the officers soon exhibited u ruinous effect on the troops, and as a couscqiV lice discipline was almost entirely nrelected. and when called unon to take fnc fluid for active duty, as at Bull run. the troojis wero found de" 11clent in drill, anil thoso officers who visited Washington most frequently to indulge In their favorite cobbler* or display ttieir pretty uniforms, were the ilrst to lead the retrograde movement and made the best time liack u Washington. General McClcllan came. and. presto: v-lui' a wonderful change in a lib I re followed his induction ,:.t< i the military department. Those officer* who had beet j residing in Washington, at the fashionable hotels, while I their commands wore encamped four or five miles from ' die cUy, wife peremptorily ordered to join their C"?" ! mancisund enjoy the lumniej ^ qnmp lify, fp* ' -iz I giing soldiers who inve.teTtb6a,t? t^inl ht Indulging in bacchanjli**, r,r(>|g; Uve boon n-dor,vl I r,-jnul1 ?*.npe, and leave only under certain rlgi ! r"'e^ camps are now under strict discipline, thi J ?^.ps drilled daily, so that ,n a few weeks we maj expect to have our soldiers in a state of thorough cf j Ocicncy. j All this work is not being accomplished without thi ^ most strenuous efforts on the part of General McClella, | and his talented staff.

Tho oflloers of this corpe have heuu selected with care, and in future movement# we shall expect to hear a good account of them. K The report recontly current In Now York that, through 1 certain informalities in tho mustertng' of several regi ' ments from that State, they were mustoroa in for ' throe months instead of two yours, us originally intended, is without any foundation in fact. Thia ulca prevailed quite extensively in tho Thirtyttrst Now York ' regiment, and many of the soldiers have written homo to ^ their friends that they expected to bo mustered out of ser- ^ * vice and return home on tho 27th inst. This is an egregious 1 mistake. Tha Tlorty lirat will have the honor to servo 1 their country for the full term of service, unless sooner 0 discharged, through the legal sources. 0 The Military Commission to examine tho newly appoint 6 ed officers in the army and volunteer forces have not yet got to work. Tho publication in the Hkkai.d of the basis of the standard of qualitlcalion to be exacted from those a appearing before tho board has already caused many ottt8 cers to resign, fearing to face the ordeal to which they 0 would bo subjected had they remained. Ceneral Mcflellau will give his attention in a few days P In systematizing the mode by which to grant furloughs '' lo both officers and men. It appears that heretofore largo numbers of officers and men have been granted furloughs T from six to thirty days on tlio mere written or verlml orders of the regimental commanders. !u future no fur lough will bo granted except by the comtnnndor of the de partment. and oi.ly . > those oi dered on special service or fbr pliyricai disability. Aunlhor wholest>nie rule to bo in o auguratetl is that relative to resignations from volunteer r_ corps. Tho system applied to regular army officers is to bo adopted nir the \oluuleers. No officer will b?t " porraitted to resign,except for iucompetency or physical e disability. Officers tendering thtdr resignations under , other circumstance* will be dropped from the rolls of the "' cori* and degraded in army orders. ' General Mclkiwoll recently issued an order systems! i?rf icg the mode of transacting business with liis department n headquarters. Two pathgrupbs in the order?one relative to resignations and the other to discharges?are worthy of '? general publicity. They aru as follows:? a- First?No officer in this department, except the general

r. commanding, has power to accept resignations of officers or grant discbarges to enlisted men. Hesitations, will ,e be forwarded to department headquarters through the B- proper channels, and until they are accepted by the B. general commanding, or higher authority, the officers offering them will not be permitted to transfer or abandon T* their duties or positions. Vacancies in tho volunteer forces are fllled by the Governors of the States to which I r, tbo regiment* heping. Second?All officers in ibis ib'iwrtmcnt arc forbidden lo sign or give discbarges on account of surgeons' certifl l- cau-s of disability, or for any otber cause, without first submitting the ccrlideate or other statement of tbo case to department headquarters, and obtaining from the " general cominatidiug the necessary uutbority to make tbc 5- discharge. ,l NEWS FROM THE SOUTH.

With official promptitude the honorable Secretary of tho Treasury entered the chamber to the minute of the ap. pointed time. He was accompanied by Hon. Caleb B.

Then followed L a br.sk lire of musketry, without, doing uny damage ot> " either side. These nightly skirmishes a thud the only excitement we have hero. We are satiated with reports 11 that Magruder will attack our camps, though we realize 0 that it is most likely to occur, for he still lingers bus- a piclously about here, a heavy detachment being within 1 four miles of Newport News, and another, probably flvo c thousand strong, remaining at New Market bridge, about l' three ftiilcs from Hampton, while a reserve is held at Big Bethel. We conuol doubt but that there is some- 6 thing in tho wind, but when and where tho blow will lie t| struck is left to Idle conjecture. Moanwhilo we await tho dcvclopcmont of affairs with exemplary (lalieuce, not doubting the result. ' 1 thought a wreck since that tho village of Hampton was the most perfect picture of desolation that the mind of matt could imagine. but the aspect tho village now prosen is in ruins deepens the sombre hues of the picture, and adds a solemnity to it thut it did not before imsseHS. " Deserted and desolati ns It was, lb" long streets, shaded on either side by venerable trees, whoso branches nearly entwined above, ueodod only the presence of aulm.il* beings to transform it into an active, tin ivlug village. But now, where stood the pleasant dwelling fronted byn garden rieb with flowers of every hue, nothing rem*.us but bure walls, blackened by smoke, and r.rucked and crumbled by the uction of the intense heat ofthccoulia '' gratiun. The pleasant white fences are in uuhos, and the ? trees Unit threw their protecting branches over tho cool tj and shady lawn are blasted by the flames, and the green foliage is changed Into red, shrivelled leaves. Nothing ? but the checkered walls remain of tliat ancient church, 1' built long liefore the ltevolution by the rude forefathers p of the hamlet, who sleep around them. The quaint tombstones that inark their last resting place also show tho m irks of the destructive clement. Indeed, ruin is 8<<eii o on every hand. Iu the byways tbe half-burned g boil lee of poultry of evory kind, pigs, cows and mules, . who coulJ not cscajie the llamas, lie in every posture. 11 Fortunately no humau being lost his life in the coutlagra h lion?all escaped tbe flames; but several negroes, it is p ram. lounu u loss paintul death id the wattrs of the creek, in their vain attempts to roach the opposite shore. " Ttie rulmt of the village aro still marked by tbo prcseno# b of smoke from smouldering beams. May we never again n witness such^nrrkl picture of war's desolation. It Is enough to tuff the heart of the Oercest again towards " peace. ci Quartermaster Riddle, of the Tenth New York Volun- 0l teors (lato McCbeaney'a Zouaves), goon to New York in a day or two tor thn "purpose ot procuring complete uni forms of the Zouave pattern for his regiment.

The regiment will ?<>on see serviee. and an opportunity is now ottered 1,1 for men who wish to tight to join li. tl There has booff a widespread and well founded feeling g of direatisfttctioo and discontent among the men of the t Sccoud ami Ninth regirae-iU, on account of the neglect of the government to pay theui for tholr servleea already rendered. Th#y have bfcan in the service of the govern- <? m?nt. three mouth* and have not received a single cent o as yet from Uncle Asm. Many ot them have left families at homo dependent upon them for support, and by tbo b oversight or'neglect of the gsvernmcnt they are now in a g, state of prrvaMon and want, they threaten to stark tbelr muskets on the 14th of this month, If they are not paid in part, and r-ifuse to do duty longer; and it in certainly the duty of the War Department te send a paymaster im r, mediately to Newport News with funds to i>.iy these men ,w off. It 1h too liard to expect men to do their duty ! well ami efficiently when they seo that their efforts ! aro not appreciated by the government. and no measures taken to fulfil Its part of the agreement entered into when the men enlisted. Men never fight belter than when they can Jinglo a few of Unele Sam's T gold pieces In their pocke-ta, for they cannot support their ci families or thems'Ives on patriotism alone. I hope this matter will be quickly uttended to. and all will go well.
